The Scourge are an army of undead that feature in Warcraft.
The Scourge were an army of undead who were the creations of the demonic forces of the Burning Legion. Their creation was linked to their efforts in bringing about their rule and control over Azeroth. The Legion's initial plans using the Horde failed with the defeat of the Orcs and the destruction of their world of Draenor. One of the survivors of Draenor was the Orc shaman Ner'zhul who was transformed into the Lich King and sent into the cold north of Northrend in Azeroth. Once there, he used his new power in taking control of the dead to form an army that became the Scourge with the Lich King being overseen by the Nathrezim Dreadlords led by Tichondrius. Thus, the Scourge's mission was to spread terror and destruction in order to pave the way for the Burning Legion's eventual invasion. The first obstacle in their plan was the Nerubians native to the cold north leading to the War of the Spider. The undead were nearly defeated due to the Nerubians immunity to the plague in this conflict but ultimately their foe was defeated and their corpses was reanimated to join their army.
In appearance, the Scourge was a vast army that consisted of undead from various races.
